Welcome to Elizabeth

Elizabeth is a charming New Jersey town that is known for its rich culture and vibrant history. 

Nestled along Newark Bay in the shadow of Manhattan, Elizabeth attracts a wide cross-section of residents. It is the fourth largest city in the state, home to some 135,000 residents, and the county seat of Union County.

Elizabeth was founded in 1664 by English settlers who called the area “Elizabethtown.” Its name was inspired by the wife of a founding father of the New Jersey Colony (not Queen Elizabeth I, contrary to popular belief). Elizabeth was New Jersey’s first capital and what is now the city was created by the 1855 combination of Elizabeth Borough and Elizabeth Township.

Princeton University was initially founded in Elizabeth in 1794 as the College of New Jersey before moving to nearby Newark and then its current location in Princeton.

The city has been home to a bustling business community since at least the 19th Century, welcoming the Singer Sewing Machine Company as well as several early automobile and boat manufacturers. More recently, it has served as home to the Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery.

Notable current and former Elizabeth residents include author Judy Blume, Brooklyn Nets basketball star Kyrie Irving, restaurateur Tom Colicchio and writer Mickey Spillane. Actors John Rua – who played King George in Broadway’s “Hamilton” – Joan Carroll and Thomas Mitchell have also called Elizabeth home. 

Commercial Litigation

As a business owner, you can bury your head in the sand and hope that disputes do not arise, or you can accept that these situations may be inevitable and work proactively to reduce your risk. 

Whether it is a problem with a vendor who violated a contract, an issue with a former employee who left with sensitive information, or a disagreement among partners, commercial disputes can wreak havoc on a business. The sooner that potential disputes are spotted and addressed, the more effectively they can be squashed.

Mr. Silberstein is a seasoned commercial litigator who helps individuals and businesses protect their interests on the front end and fights aggressively for them when disputes happen. He is committed to resolving disputes efficiently so that business owners can focus on what they do best: running their companies.

Consumer Law

People who spend their hard-earned money on products and services usually do not expect to walk away physically injured or financially harmed. Yet, consumers are taken advantage of by a wide range of defective products and deceptive business practices every day across New Jersey and throughout the country.

New Jersey has some of the strongest consumer protection laws in the country, giving people the right to fight back against fraud and deception. In addition to seeking compensation for the harm, you can also help stop fraudsters from targeting others by reporting deceptive business practices to various state and federal regulators.

Mr. Silberstein has significant experience assisting people and families who have been harmed by shady business practices.

Personal Injury

Accidents may be a part of life, but that does not mean it is any less painful, aggravating, and stress-inducing when mishaps occur. 

Whether it is a slip and fall on an icy sidewalk or a high-speed collision on a busy highway, accidents can come with serious and even life-threatening injuries. In the event that a person dies in an accident, it can leave his or her loved ones in dire financial straits along with the sweeping emotional toll that comes with the loss of a family member.

Fortunately, anyone injured in an accident – and family members of a person who dies in an accident – has the right to seek monetary damages from those responsible. That includes compensation for medical bills, missed wages during recuperation and the impact of the injuries on long-term earning capacity, among other financial consequences of the accident.

Condominium Litigation

Condo buildings have sprung up throughout Elizabeth and the surrounding area over the last several decades. These homeownership situations can raise a number of complicated legal issues for condo owners and boards.

Disputes often arise over the extensive limits condo boards impose on the use of the property, as well as the penalties for non-compliance. That is not to mention questions that commonly come up over who is responsible for certain obligations related to the condo building and individual units.

The laws governing condominiums can be complex and disputes can pit neighbor against neighbor. It is vital to have an experienced lawyer in your corner.


Sometimes judges and juries do not get it right the first time around. That is why you have the right to file an appeal.

The appellate system is meant to ensure trial court rulings get a “second look” from a disinterested panel of appellate justices. But pursuing an appeal requires particular experience and a deep understanding of how the process works for challenging a decision.

Mr. Silberstein can discuss your case and help you weigh whether to appeal a judgment. He has significant experience reviewing cases in various stages, including those in which a previous lawyer is accused of malpractice.
